From the Foundry:

"One of the most striking aspects of the workshop was the focus on milliseconds, not seconds or even bytes. A lot can happen in just a few hundered milliseconds. Tim presented a stat from Walmart, where they found for every 100ms they were able to shave off of load time, they saw a 1% increase in revenue. For such a huge retailer, that's a lot of money." - Philip Zastrow
